Extension of the Grace Period for NFIP Premiums Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

To avoid a lapse in coverage, there is typically a 30-day grace period to renew policies. However, due to the widespread economic disruption arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, FEMA recognizes that flood insurance policyholders may not meet the standard policy renewal deadline.

To help serve its National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) customers who may be experiencing financial hardships, the agency is extending the grace period to renew flood insurance policies from 30 to 120 days. This extension applies to NFIP flood insurance policies with an expiration date between February 13-June 15, 2020.

The purpose of the Plan is to identify natural and man-made hazards, activities to reduce losses from those hazards, and establish a coordinated process to implement the Plan. The City needs your input to create a safer, more disaster-resilient community. The Survey is comprised of 30 questions and is divided into the following three sections:

This survey consists of three sets of questions:

  1. The first section identifies demographic information used to correlate responses to the questionnaire.
  2. The second section involves potential hazards near you and whether your knowledge of potential hazards influenced your decision to choose where you live.
  3. The last section is about your experience and knowledge of natural and non-natural hazards in general and steps your household has taken to prepare for hazardous events.
